"Parc Leopold" Parc Léopold Tip by scottishvisitor

Parc Léopold, Brussels: 9 reviews and 27 photos

Firstly let me tell you what my guide book said about Parc Leopold "a some what bedraggeled park once the home to the city zoo, a function it still performs today albeit for semi caged Eurocrats in search of some space" Well we didn't see any Eurocrats here but if it hadn't been a weekend we probably would have given its close proximity to the European Union. Bedraggeled it certainly was not. Parc Leopold, like most of the parks we visited in the city, was small but very beautiful. We spent some time sitting by the little lake enjoying the fine weather, relaxing a while in some green space and watching the ducks constantly in search of food. The park is quite hilly but lots of benches line the paths so you can take a seat before continuing your stroll around. We didn't have one but it is the perfect place for a picnic.
